6:06 pm
rehabilitation of big cats is currently illegal in california. the mountain lion foundation offered examples of five nonliele that procedures: one, capturing mountain lions using bait on traps. two, pursuing a lion until it's cornered. three, using tranquilize guns or pills. four, monitoring the animals with collars or surgical implants. and five, hazing, using loud noises like sirens. they would also partner with veterinarians and other organizations who are experiences dealing with wildlife. >> i believe our fish and wildlife wardens do an outstanding job every day under harsh conditions and with limited resources. so what we're doing is trying to offer them the tools that they can put in their toolbox when they encounter mountain lions. >> reporter: a spokesman from a rescue group said no matter what happens to the bill they plan to obtain 10 acres for mountain lion rehabilitation if
